Getting column types with DBI

Hello,

does DBI support getting the column types for row? I digged the source
and found that DBD::Mysql does something on it but I don’t know, how get
actually use it.

Thanks,

take a look at this attachment. it’s my general library for accessing a
database.

you’ll notice that in the DBConnection class there is a method called
load_meta. in it you’ll see @connection.columns() this pulls down the
meta-info including types into a hash.

hope that helps.
